Unlike energy (gas and electricity), the Dutch water grid is not privatised. This means that people in the Netherlands cannot choose their own water supplier.
Water supply companies in the Netherlands

Don't forget to notify the water supplier
Have you bought a house and moving to a new address? Simply notify your water supplier that you are moving (then notify the water supplier in your new region). Most of the time, this can be done online.
Are you renting a house? Often, your landlord will have made arrangements. If not, notify the water supplier in your (new) region.
